- FIST Cluster :
- The cluster consists of 36 nodes connected by Gigabit ethernet and infiniband.
- Each node includes:
- 2 Xeon quad core processors (2.66GHz, 12MB L2 Cache)
- 16GB memory
- 250GB hard disk
- The nodes run CentOS (release 5.3).
- The currently available software includes:
- C and Fortran compilers (gcc, Intel C and Fortran compilers)
- MPI (mvapich, mvapich2 and openmpi)
- Libraries (mkl, gotoblas2)
- The cluster uses the Torque cluster manager, Maui scheduler and Ganglia monitoring tool.
- Managed by Prof. Matthew Jacob Thazhuthaveetil
- 25 node,100 core, AMD opteron 275 cluster.
- 24-Node (2 DualCore each) cluster.
- 6-Node Xeon cluster.
- All connected on a Gigabit network.
Students and faculty of the institute also have access to a wide
range of computing
facilities (including most softwares) available in the Supercomputer and
Education Research Center (SERC) of the institute.
This includes the recently acquired IBM
Blue Gene Supercomputer.
